On August 18, 2020, Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden became the Democratic Presidential Nominee for the 2020 election.
Biden finally became the Democratic nominee after his third try. Joe Biden gained 2,687 delegates from the Democratic primaries with Senator Bernie Sanders in second place with 1,073 delegates. The DNC held a virtual roll call from the fifty states with lesser-known democrats advocating for a Biden Presidency, and it showcased a racially diverse field of representatives of their respected state.
For a long time, Joe Biden has sought the Presidency. He first ran in 1988 but eventually dropped out because he was caught lying about his law school record and plagiarizing former politician’s speeches. He attempted the Presidency a second time in 2008, but failed because he ran against high profile politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Now, in 2020, he seeks the Presidency for the third time. In a long and rigorous primary race with a field of candidates, Joe Biden finally secured nomination. Biden became the presumptive nominee after Senator Sanders suspended his presidential campaign following a crushing defeat in Super Tuesday.
Now, Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden will face Donald Trump in the 2020 election, arguably one of the most important elections of the century.
